Affordable Colleges Online has listed WSC's online graduate education program as one of the country's best.
Wayne State College was recently recognized by Affordable Colleges Online, a leading education and industry resource for online education information, for having one of the best online education programs in the nation.
The program ranks in the top 45 on Affordable Colleges Online’s list.
“The importance to identify outstanding online master’s programs in education and teaching is undoubtedly pertinent at this time,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of Affordable Colleges Online. “As rules and regulations change in education, the need for programs online will continue to increase.”
In order for universities to qualify for this ranking they must be public, not-for-profit institutions and offer at least five online master’s degrees.
Qualifying schools were then evaluated based on the count of online master’s degrees available, graduate tuition and fees, academic and career counseling services, job placement for graduates, and Peer-Based Value (PBV)*.
Wayne State offers several graduate options in education, including Education Specialist (Ed.S.) and Master of Science in Education (MSE), with the choice to focus on Counseling, Curriculum and Instruction, Exercise Science, or School Administration.
